Cooking from the Heart - When Love is the Similar Ingredient

What I have learned from running the chicken soup recipe contest is that there are only winners when you cook from the heart!!  It was such a thrilling and sobering experience receiving, making, eating and "judging" all the recipes.  The making and eating was the easy part.  And the judging was made somewhat easy as the "story" was part of the contest and some of the stories were just stand-outs along with their recipes.

Here are the links to the three "winning" recipes and stories:

Francine's Avgolemono, Carol's Asian-style and Judith Lerner's traditional.  And check out what the news team at NewsChannel13 had to say.

I will be putting the other 14 recipes online over the next week or so.  They are all truly delicious!!

And again. I learned that when you mix love, a treasured family recipe and good ingredients together, you always get a winner!!

Life at Boulderwood:
My Love Dog

My heart opens with unconditional love for Burt.  And I believe it is returned to me.  He is my ever-present companion. And he can truly communicate with me.  I know exactly when he wants to go outside for some spring water or to do his business.  He knows when Jim is about to build a fire - he see Jim carrying the kindling and he darts into the living room to claim his spot in front of the fireplace.  This photo was snapped in the kitchen while I was making chicken soup - he was just hanging with me!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my doggie!!

Tabletop Tuesdays:
Daffodil Bouquet

Daffodils are the surest sign of spring.  However, I don't expect to see any signs of daffodils until April as our hillside is still covered with snow.  However, I can't resist the bunches of daffodils that are sold in the grocery stores.  Just a touch of spring, the bright yellow color, the scent of their fragrance are enough to bridge the gap until our daffodils bloom!!
